    I've been trying to do something similar to madmatt's dtop but when i went to add the html to the dtop my wallpaper disappeared and the html didn't show up. I tried adding a picture to the dtop and the same thing happened.
    The above works fine in ME, just not XP. Any ideas, what could be wrong?

    Anyone? Or is a reinstall of windows required?

    You would need to make the background image apart of your HTML document, i.e. <body background="FILE">

    Tried that, still no good, even when there's no background.

    Just in case anyone was wondering, I found the problem. It seems that unchecking 'Show Desktop Icons' has cleared up my little problem.

    Really? Now that is truly weird. And here I thought that I would have to code up some VBSCRIPT/ActiveX to make it work correctly. Glad you got it.
